The Laughter Foundation was created and founded by Steven in 2010. When Steven found himself back in America and experiencing a life- threatening emergency and only having National Health from his adopted country of England, Steven created TLF as a stop-gap to help professional stand-up comedians in emergencies. The Laughter Foundation has saved a single-mom comedian from eviction, helped another with cancer meds and housed and fed others. TLF is currently reformulating its board and is planning a giant comedy gala in 2017. 

TLF’s two main programs are THE HECKLER FUND, emergency grants for comedians. 

And THE COMEDY MUSEUM, a world-class museum to study and exhibit the art, history and science of comedy.
